Strange bedfellows: Feds piling on Christie
may finally rally conservative pushback

Legal Insurrection, by William A. Jacobson

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/14/2014 5:35:48 AM

The other day I tried to make the distinction between dislike of Chris Christie, and joining the media mob which eventually will turn on Republican candidates you like. I told you not to feed that beast. To defend Chris Christie: This is not about Chris Christie. It’s about any number of other Republican candidates who will be met with the same faux-outrage and media-led obsession a year from now as the 2016 field begins to define itself. Don’t feed the beast. It’s getting worse, as the feds are piling on. Within days of Bridgegate, Eric Holder and the U.S. Attorney’s Office were on the

Jacobson is correct.

The ad was just Christie doing his job.

My philosophy about Republican candidates. If the media is for them, I´m against them.

If the media is excoriating them, the better I like them.

As said in the comments after the article, Christie did himself in long before these latest pseudo scandals.
Conservatives are electable, RINOs are not.

Don´t get your knickers in a twist, Willie. True conservatives never intended to vote for Christie. And, my liberal bed wetting friend wants him to run. That´s all I need to know about the man.

Christie can go ask Obama for help. Christie has done nothing but give conservatives the back hand.

But Christie says he doesn´t like or need conservatives.

The outrage is that Christie supporters are not screaming about the double standard of bullying and retaliation compared to Obama and Bill Clinton.

OR, in the alternative, Christie has made his bed with the scorpion, obama/dems, and the scorpion has done what it does, kill the frog. Unfortunately, by aligning himself with liberals (which is really all a "republican" in a strongly dem state can do), the conservatives will just watch the liberals eat one of their own.

Andy McCarthy (lead prosecutor on the Blind Sheik case)points out at NRO that FatBoySlim has been caught lying several times BEFORE bridgegate.

This guy would be a disastrous GOP nominee for president. Disneyworld for DEM oppo researchers.

While I don´t like Christie and would not vote for him for President (unless the opponent was Hillary) I´m outraged that Obama´s Feds are going after him politically. We must not save our outrage at this misuse of federal power for our friends only.

Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday warned of pending sanctions against Russia for its invasion of Ukraine; he gave Putin an ultimatum to halt the aggression by Monday or “serious things will happen.” Kerry then proceeded to strike additional fear into Putin’s heart by saying talk of sanctions was not “a threat,” nor anything “personal,” of course. “We hope President Putin will recognize that none of what we’re saying is meant as a threat, it’s not meant in a personal way. It is meant as a matter of respect for the international, multilateral structure that we have lived by

Investigators announced Saturday morning that the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane has turned into a criminal investigation. Get up to speed on the mystery here. By now it’s nearly impossible to not have heard about the mysterious case of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. But if you’re a bit shaky on the details of what exactly happened to the missing jetliner, you’re not alone. The information that has come to light in the days since the Boeing 777 and its 239 passengers and crew disappeared without a trace, has only added to the confusion.

A gun store owner in California has a message for the feds: No, you can’t force me to turn over my customer list to you. Fox 5 in San Diego reported that Dimitrios Karras, the Oceanside, Calif. owner of Ares Armor, said Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms department agents have threatened to raid his business if he doesn’t hand over a list of all customers who purchased an item for building an AR-15. The ATF, according to Karras, wants the names of 5,000 customers who bought a certain 80 percent lower receiver, something the feds say is illegal. Gun stores that have sold

On a street corner in downtown Washington, D.C., David Wise is opening a century-old iron gate in front of an old, boarded-up brick building. Wise is an investigator for the Government Accountability Office, the government´s watchdog group. His mission is to figure out why the government owns so many buildings, like this one, that it doesn´t use. The 132-year-old brick structure is sitting on prime real estate six blocks from the White House. It was once a school, but it´s been vacant for almost three decades.

The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee on Friday emphasized the need for the group to institute “population behavior change” in order to engineer healthier Americans. DGAC Chair Barbara Millen said the upcoming report would serve as the “foundation for public policy and food nutrition, physical activity, and health-related areas.” The group will release new recommendations for federal food policy in the 2015 report. Millen said the “potential is vast” for their recommendations, which deal with everything from “sustainability” in the food supply to “carbon footprints,” food deserts, alcohol consumption, and obesity “interventions.” “From our food programs, WIC [Women, Infants, and Children], SNAP, and so

Continuing what seems like a quest to photograph every stretch of space on Earth, Google took its Street View cameras and technology down the Colorado River, the first time an American river is available for a virtual vacation. Giving you one less reason to go outside, Google´s "river view" spans 286 miles of the Colorado — that par that meanders through Arizona´s Grand Canyon National Park — in their latest effort to deliver the world´s far-flung, and often dangerous, places to our screens.

In case you missed it, Senate Democrats staged an all-night talkfest on Monday to promote higher taxes and increased government regulation to address the scientific theory known as “climate change.” Hopefully you did miss it, because most well adjusted people have better things to do than stay up all night watching a bunch of senior citizens talk about solar panels and wind turbines. At least one person was paying close attention: liberal billionaire and reluctant democracy advocate Tom Steyer, who has pledged to spend $100 million backing Democrats who support aggressive government action to reduce carbon emissions. Democratic senators want Steyer’s

"I just do want to say that right after I turned 17 and got my New Jersey driver´s license, one of the earliest places I drove was a trip — the only trip I have ever taken was to Hawaii," he said on the floor at about 3:00 a.m. "You didn´t drive to Hawaii," Sen.

With a face like this, is it any wonder we are the laughingstock of the world? To be fair, Secretary of State John Kerry started out at a considerable disadvantage. His long, narrow face — with those sad, sunken eyes — has often been compared to that of a horse. Perhaps a starving draft mule retreating with a family from the Dust Bowl during the Great Depression. That, along with what he says when he opens his mouth, has long made him an easy caricature of a perfect buffoon. Mr. Kerry will, of course, go down in history as the

It may take years before investigators determine exactly what happened to Malaysia Airline Flight MH370. But the conspiracy theories are already flowing freely. The facts behind the plane’s mysterious disappearance make it ripe for theories that range from the plausible, like pilot error, to the outright bizarre, like alien abduction. The Boeing 777 en route to Beijing vanished early Saturday morning, along with its 239 passengers and crew. Investigators say the flight veered off course for more than an hour with all of its tracking systems turned off. Dozens of ships and aircraft from nine nations have launched a search and rescue

WASHINGTON – The Food and Drug Administration said Tuesday it approved a nerve-stimulating headband as the first medical device to prevent migraine headaches. Agency officials said the device provides a new option for patients who cannot tolerate migraine medications. The Cefaly device is a battery-powered plastic band worn across the forehead. Using an adhesive electrode, the band emits a low electrical current to stimulate nerves associated with migraine pain. Users may feel a tingling sensation on the skin where the electrode is applied. The device is designed to be used no more than 20 minutes a day by patients 18

The maker of Sam Adams beer announced Friday that it is withdrawing its sponsorship of Boston´s St. Patrick´s Day parade because organizers exclude gay groups. Boston Beer Co.´s decision came a day after a bar in Boston´s South End said it would no longer serve Sam Adams beer because of the brewer´s affiliation with the parade, which is scheduled for Sunday. Mayor Martin Walsh and U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch have been trying to broker a deal that would have allowed a gay group to march, but those negotiations broke down.

President Obama warned young people that if they don´t sign up for Obamacare by March 31, they will face a penalty -- if they can afford it. During an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest, Obama explained that young people might be charged a fine if they don´t get insured. "If you can afford it — you just decide you don´t want to get it because your attitude is ´nothing´s ever going to happen to me´ — then you´ll be charged a penalty," Obama explained.

The day before the Iowa caucuses in 2008, I wrote about the massive crowds of young people at Barack Obama rallies, noting that his candidacy would collapse “if they don’t show up.” The next night, after Obama’s victory celebration in Des Moines, Obama strategist Steve Hildebrand spotted me in a crowd. “The kids showed up!” he said fiercely. They did. But where are they now? An army of 15 million voters under 30 swept Obama past Hillary Clinton and John McCain and to the presidency in 2008. More than 12 million helped him return in 2012. But now his presidency is on the line — and the Obama youth are abandoning him in

President Barack Obama lamented on Friday that he´s been unfairly criticized for wearing loose jeans. “I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans,” he joked in a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest. “The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans."

Last week, the U.S. Tenth Circuit decided a case that should reverberate on Capitol Hill. In Kerr v. Hickenlooper, five Colorado legislators sought “standing” to challenge a state constitutional amendment. The three-judge panel — consisting of Carter and Clinton appointees — ruled in favor of the legislators’ standing. This decision should embolden members of Congress who correctly believe that President Obama has encroached upon Congress’ constitutional authority. Indeed, Congress should do no less in defending its authority than the five Colorado state legislators. Many members of Congress believe that numerous presidential actions — delaying various provisions of the Affordable Care

In case you hadn’t heard, young people these days — a.k.a “the Millennials” — are the most cynical and distrusting generation ever recorded. Only 19 percent think most people can be trusted. According to a big study from the Pew Research Center, they are less attached to marriage, religion, and political institutions than Gen Xers, Baby Boomers, and the other demographic flavors journalists love to use. They like their friends, their digital “social networks,” and their toys, and that’s about it. Not even a majority will call themselves “patriotic.” Probably more dismaying for liberals: Of any living generation, they are
